First Bell and Ross BR01 Tourbillon in Canada ¶
We are proud to say that we will be receiving the first Bell & Ross BR01 Tourbillon in Canada. This extremely exclusive watch, limited to 60 pieces worldwide, should be arriving next week.
In addition to a tourbillon and power reserve indicator, the Bell & Ross BR01 Tourbillon regulator style timepiece also features an interesting addition. A torque indicator the company is calling its trust index. This display takes the tension of the mainspring into account, giving the wearer a reckoning of the spring's precision based on the amount of torque left in it. This stunning timepiece is housed in a titanium case coated with DLC (diamond like carbon) which hardens it to 4,000 Vickers, making it virtually scratch proof. Carbon fiber was also used to craft the dial and the inserts found around the side of the case, lightening the total weight of the case without compromising its robustness thanks in part to the fact that the movements base plate is also crafted in carbon fiber. Completing the high tech look, the visible tourbillon carriage is made of blackened gold.
We are anxiously awaiting its arrival, and will tell you every detail as we open its lacquered wood and carbon presentation case.
